Ultimate Career Goals: "I would like to become the CEO of a company. I am a major supporter of the idea that you should set your goals high. Even if I don't become a CEO, by working towards that goal, I hopefully will have achieved success in my career. More short-term goals include helping others to reach financial security, reaching a point of financial security myself, and doing work that benefits the community. I really want to help other people and I believe that I can use my talents, as well as my experience at Le Moyne to do so."
Activities While a Student?: "I participated in the Sports Management Club and was vice president of the Investment Club. Additionally, I was a student research assistant, working on the Inner Compass Magazine, and was an inaugural member of the Heights Global Marketing firm, which we started on campus this year. I was also recently inducted in Beta Gamma Sigma, the business honor society, and awarded The Francis and Martha McElroy Medal in Business."
Advice for Future 'Phins: "I would encourage them to set clear goals for themselves, whether it is to be on the Dean's List, get a 4.0, or even make new friends. I would also say to be prepared to work hard, but try to find ways to enjoy your work. Find what classes interest you and reach out to professors in those fields and build relationships with them. This place is filled with so many great people and opportunities and taking advantage of them will really separate yourself when you look to move on in four (very short) years."
